Just days after Ty Segall’s near-literal interpretation of The Velvet Underground’s “Femme Fatale”, friend/collaborator Tim Presley (aka White Fence) releases his rendition of “Run Run Run”. Presley takes the strummy, somewhat cheery-sounding tune and cuts into it like a mad scientist, transforming it into a lo-fi mound of whispery vocals and mangled instruments that eventually devolves into blissful junk noise and tape hiss. Stream it below (via Stereogum).
Both covers, in addition to “European Son” by Thee Oh Sees and “All Tomorrows Parties” by The Fresh & Onlys, will appear on The Velvet Underground & Nico by Castle Face And Friends. The covers album will be available only on vinyl beginning November 6th, though the songs will also be available to download through various websites from October 15th-29th. Meanwhile, the 458th reissue of The Velvet Underground & Nico will be released on October 30th.
